All published silicoflagellate and ebridian taxa of generic rank and lower, both fossil and Recent, are indexed. Citations of their geographic and geologic provenance, and place cf original publication are included, and their nomenclatural status indicated by type face. Illegitimate and invalid taxa are further annotated as to the reason for such status, and reference is made to the appropriate article in the botanical or zoological code of nomenclature.
Later published new combinations are also indexed with reference to the original basionym, but no new transfers are included here. Of the total 1037 entries in the index, 404 refer to the original valid publication of legitimate new taxa of generic or lower rank. Because of relative inaccessibility of many publications, the original diagnoses for these validly published taxa are quoted in the later section, in the original language. No subjective comment is made as to their relative status, possible synonymy, and so on. Similarly, except for 12 taxa which have never been figured, the original illustrations of validly proposed taxa of specific or lower rank are reproduced on the plates under their original names.
Type designations are included in the index for the genera Lutetianella, Mesocena, Microdistephanus, and Sphaerosomatites.
A brief review of previous work on siliceous phytoplankton includes comment on problems pertaining to their systematic position, their geologic and geographic distribution, and the availability of published information.
Only those publications cited in the index or introduction are listed among the references.
